Has anyone used this to dip the front black door handles white? If so how is it holding up?

I wouldn't. It will end up peeling and that will be more than enough to do your rear bumper!!

Did my bumper over the weekend too, how did the finish on yours turn out? Mine has a bit of a texture to it which im thinking is normal with plasti dip, or maybe I didn't spray it on heavy enough.

Your truck looks great but is screaming for a BHLM. Looks killer with all white and black up front.

I have used black and I have used white.

White acts differnt.

This video seems to have figured out the best way to use white

Yeah mine has a texture to it as well but it isn't too noticeable. I went with 4 coats on all bumpers and grill trim piece. I was thinking of clear coating it with some rustoleum clear but it will make it 4 times as tough to pill off if the plasti dip start coming off in places.

BLHM is my next to do on the list. Might even attempt it this weekend. Just kind of skeptical on tearing my lights apart!

Plastidip has their own clear, they call it glossifier. It isint a super high gloss bot peels off gist like regular dip.

I was a bit nervous about putting my headlights in the oven too. But I followed the thread by alwayslooking in the diy section and it was a cake walk.

Might have to give the BHLM a try this weekend if i get a few hours.

As far as the glossifier i seen some at the home depot here by my house but they were all sold out. Did you use the glossifier?

Bhlm takes more than a few hrs, your supposed to let the paint gass off for 24 hrs before you seal them back up.

Yep I used half a can or so, got it at pep boys. I've used it before and it peels off really easy.

Let it be known you don't have to wait 24 hrs for paint on bhlm. You can have both apart and sanded and primed within 30 mins. Then spray few coats of rustoleum wait about 30-45 mins and go put them back together. Only thing is don't touch the paint it'll fingerprint. I've done several and each came out great!

Thanks for the heads up, I figured 24 hrs was a bit excessive but that's what I read. I took mine apart on a Friday after work and painted, put them back together the next day.

Yeah I think I might give it a try tomorrow if it only take a couple hours to do. Doesn't seem like it should be to hard. Sorry for hi-jacking this into a BHLM lol. But I guess with that being said is plasti-dip capable of being used for the BHLM?

Actually I think im the one who started the bhlm derail...lol But yes I have seen where several guys have used dip on their bhlm or whlm. Im pretty sure @SouthernVoice is one of them. Only benefit I see to using dip is if you don't like it you can open them back up and peel it off.
